The project will have the end goal of migrating four identity capabilities into one consolidate and unified authentication system following the clients overall IAM strategy and reusing the already centrally procured tooling (Okta, Savyint and Open Policy agent).

1st Phase:

  • In the 1st phase the focus is on providing a unified Login experience between connected retail users and direct users.
  • Migrating authentication capabilities to Okta (IAM procured service) from Auth0 (Connected Retail IAM solution) and Keycloak (Direct IAM solution).
  • The solution implementation will have to concentrate of minimizing the efforts on dependent systems and processes (eg. onboarding and off-boarding) and as well guaranteeing a smooth or invisible migration for the end users' point of view.
  • At the end of these phase the client expects having the users being able to login with one set of credentials into a unified partner Identity solution and being able to single-sign-on to applications offered independently.

  • The solution will have to take into consideration extensibility, reusability requirement, as the structure/hierarchy, systems and processes will need to be extended and able to support other partner facing parts of the company.

  • We expect the clients operational effort to control partner users' access to be 0 as a partner can manage their access in autonomy. We expect partner support teams (partner helpdesk) to be able to act on access just for recovery an emergency procedure.
  • We expect onboarding procedure controlled by Salesforce systems and custom services maintained by the direct and connected retail to converge into a consistent process.
